    Shoo-in for best style. Not sure if the game will be any good, but everything about it aesthetically is superb. And that music! Too bad console versions are coming later, because that's where I want to play it.

    @rongalaxy: Yeah all the music I've heard so far is amazing, but with Disasterpeace doing the music I'm not surprised.

    Huh, I just thought about this game today...and I thought I had already preordered it back in 2014, but apparently not. Funny enough, that I seemingly made the other exisiting thread about this. Maybe that's a sign that I should buy it now...that and also the fact that the game looks pretty sweet.

    Fucking right we do! Backed the Kickstarter and have been anxiously waiting ever since. Didn't think it would be this soon.

    I think I had my fill of 2D games with randomly-generated environments, so hearing this is out soon makes me excited. I hope the music featured in the trailer is a part of the game's soundtrack.

    So this is coming out tomorrow! Going for $17.99 at GoG and Humble Store at the moment. Haven't seen any reviews yet, but I'd hope the gameplay for this one is at least well-made, so I can get my need for pixels satisfied after Slain failed to deliver.

    I've been real down on 8bit-retro-styled games of late, so I feel like a huge hypocrite for being really excited about this primarily because of the art style.
